Israel 2014--Dan Jerusalem; Days 1-2
The following blog is in anticipation of a trip to Israel.
DAY 1 - Leave for our flight to the land of Israel.
DAY 2 - Arrive TEL AVIV and drive to JERUSALEM and around the ancient walls of the city. Check into the beautiful Dan Jerusalem and have a wonderful meal and get a good night’s rest before the adventure really gets going!
Jerusalem--The most historic city in Jerusalem.
Day 2: We will be staying at the luxurious Hotel Dan in Jerusalem. Our view of Jerusalem is panoramic, being able to see Temple Mount as well as the City of David, the Old City and the rest of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is believed to first be mentioned in the book of Genesis as Salem, where Melchizedek was King. Salem is commonly known to us as Shalom, or peace. While not all agree that Salem is the same as Jerusalem, the city and the King are mentioned three times in the Bible, in Gen. 14:18, Ps. 76:2, and Heb. 7:1-2.
